Rohan

Location of the West-March on a map of Rohan

The West-March was a part of Rohan to the West of Edoras. It lay south of the Isen river and north of the Adorn river. Beyond the Isen River was the Gap of Rohan, which led to Isengard.[1][2]

It was held as a fortified area under the command of the lords of Rohan in opposition to the hostile Dunlendings. By the end of the late Third Age, Théodred was its lord and during the War of the Ring it passed to Erkenbrand.[3]

The West-March is not to be confused with the Westmarch, a land granted to the Hobbits of the Shire reaching to the Tower Hills.
